Valery Grishko


Valery works as the chief stage director of the Samara Academic Gorky Drama Theatre, but manages to find time to star in movies. Not everyone from our team recognised him as the Orthodox priest from Zvyagintsev’s acclaimed ‘Leviathan’. While the public was still discussing the film that won the Golden Globe in the United States, Valery shaved off the beard and jumped headfirst into new projects. He visited our studio for the first time between trips, and we hit it off straight away.
